by an incident in union square. i want to take a moment and thank the san francisco police department for your input. if we pass legislation to require additional security requirements and plans. we pass legislation to give the entertainment commission more tools to shut down those handful of clubs that have often given a bad name to the rest of the industry. we passed legislation to pass for the first time a party registry. and we pass legislation to ensure a minimum level of security. all of that being said, the great news is today for that for whatever reason, in part because of good legislation and part because of good law enforcement and in part because of the good work that you all are doing, it is much improved. i know lager get woken up on sunday mornings by tv reporters asking me to comment on the latest shooting. we have an opportunity to ensure that san francisco has the greatest and most vibrant nightlife of any major city in the country. i want to thank my colleague scott wiener for helping to showcase the importance of the other nine to five economy. the impact of all that you do
everybody here to san francisco, my very good friend. thank you. where are you? when we first talked about this, we said there had to be the place where everybody felt comfortable. there had to be a place where we could feel the excitement of all very different asian american groups. we had to have a place where something wonderful had been accomplished. a leadership change, one that we never thought in our lifetimes. by the way, as you know, i never thought in our lifetimes we would see an african-american president of the united states. what a wonderful location, that is something to celebrate. he has been here many times, president obama. the very surprised we had of being able to celebrate the first asian mayor of san francisco. it was not my doing, it was all of the people of san francisco saying it is about time we celebrate. thank you to the people of san [applause] i have a very short message. what did i have felt very strongly in my first elected year, but also during my tenure as interim mayor. we have a great deal of celebrate. we also have a great challenge in front of us. ther
of san francisco, public health and san francisco public health, the metropolitan transportation authority and parks and recs and the boys and girls club among others to deliver the opportunities and services. at the out set what i also wanted to say and i was taken by henry's comments so i diverted a lot but i wanted to say how pleased i am here to join the mayor and the supervisor and the house leader pelosi, representatives here from the two neighborhoods and others, and really to say that, and i think henry you talked about the mayor's leadership here and really about the vision of transforming our housing, improving schools and supporting economic development that these are the most effective when the public and the private institutions work together and break down barriers and cut through the red tape and thank you very much for your leadership. [applause] so choice neighborhoods is just one powerful example of the obama administration investing better and we do what works and stop what doesn't work and form the partnerships that we need to solve the challenges of irnlt ge
for it. i am mr. yep and lived in san francisco for 50 plus years. this is a neighborhood i am familiar with especially at night and i am questioning since the city is on record for supporting small businesses why we're still issuing new beer and wine licenses? if i remember correct leeann earlier discussions here. >> >> at city hall there was going to be emphasis on trying to slow down the spread of these licenses, so if we're serious about supporting small businesses, especially in this area, maybe not issue it and this way give existing businesses, and also i think in the future when we have these liquor license statements i would also like to hear from the district supervisor in the area where the license is being considered so this way we have some sort of district input from city government rather than just the police and the planning department, so i think if we're going to support small business in san francisco we should try to limit new issuances of beer and wine licenses so this way the existing businesses could -- in a certain sense flourish, and it also sends a me

(listing names ) if you were really smart and if you are as smart as hydra wants everybody to be in san francisco, because of her board of education work, you should know victoria manalo dreys park. that was named after vicky dreyes, a filipino olympian from san francisco. these are names we should never forget. we'll see another names as they s
and local economies. our -- show that sequestration will reduce federal funding direct to san francisco by at least 26.5 million dollars a year, every single year. we would see over $5 million of cut to education, and almost $3 million of cuts from public housing. san francisco's allocation of medicare would be cut by $2 million. funding for the wic workforce program would lose almost $5 million. there would be a $1 million cut to housing services for people with hiv and aids and more than $1 million cut to the community development block grant program. ladies and gentlemen, this is our safety net. and our safety net's already strained by years of state cuts and it cannot sustain these additional reductions in federal funding. in addition to the cuts i have just detailed, there are also competitive grants and state pass-throughs that will also see cuts, and totals for which we really cannot estimate at this time. although this is serious business, and we need to get engaged -- although this is serious, we need to get engaged as a city to advocate against request ration -- sequestration

. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is bart murphy, i'm a san francisco rent board commissioner for the last 17 years. i'm a san francisco landlord. i am asking you to continue this matter to the call of the chair, not that i or other people might be specifically opposed to the issue, it's just that it's come up, i would suggest that the committee or the proposer to the committee is rushing their fences somewhat in putting this on for today with a referral to the full board tomorrow and that this matter would benefit from some consideration both at the rent board commission and further discussion amongst various stake holders. this has not been on the agenda of the rent board at all to my knowledge. i go to meetings, i get an agenda, it's never been brought up, it's never been mentioned in new business or old business. we get monthly statistics of reports of various actions of the rent board, notices served, claims made. this issue has never been brought up and if it is an issue it's worthy of a discussion amongst the commission. supervisor olage will recall when she was on

utilities commission runs water, power and sewer services for san francisco. we can't afford to be out of business after an earthquake. so, we're thinking about building a building. that building is going to hold our operations center and our emergency operations center for things like earth quack. that building had to be immediately occupiable. great. but we can do better than that. so, this new technology that we ended up using was a concrete building that straps basically, that goes through the interior of the building and allow the building to turn or twist as part of an earthquake as it corrects itself. >> in the course for the puc building, we've actually incorporated in addition to that steel that's embedded in the monolithic concrete, specialized high strength cables that are not bonded to the sound concrete, but are threaded through essentially hollow conduits in the cast concrete. and when those cables are spread, they're actually anchored and they're actively in other floors and pressing down, forcing that concrete wall into a state of compression. and that's the characteri
